    This teen camp will explore the fundamentals of wheel throwing. We will slow down and take our time learning wheel basics and focus on establishing a physical memory of wedging, centering and creating a form in clay along with settling our minds for better creative work. Along with wheel throwing we will develop our own personal expression in clay through shape, content, textures and colors. This is about fun, so come, no matter your skill level. Students will be allowed to come to open studio hours that week with permission of the teacher.
